So -- I'm pretty sure systemd and friends should be using
/dev/urandom. Maybe gpg wants to use /dev/random. _Maybe_.

Anyway, urandom should need to be seeded once, and then provide random
data forever... which is not impression I get from the dmesg output
above. Boot clearly proceeds... somehow. So now I'm confused.

Best regards,
